Love Actually (Jamie & Aurelia)

[neither understands the other's language]

Jamie:[in English] Er... Would you like the last, uh...biscuit?

Aurelia: [in Portuguese] Thank you very much, but no.

Jamie: [in English ]No?

Aurelia: [in Portuguese] If you saw my sister, you'd understand why.

Jamie:[in English] That's all right, more for me.

Aurelia: [in Portuguese] Just don't go eating it all yourself, you're getting chubbier every day.

Jamie: [in English] I'm very lucky, I've got one of those constitutions where I never put on weight.

Jamie: [in English] It's my favorite time of day, driving you.

Aurelia: [in Portuguese] It's the saddest part of my day, leaving you.

[Jamie has learned Portugese]

Jamie: Good evening. Mr. Barros?

Mr. Barros: Yes?

Jamie: I am here to ask your daughter for her hands in marriage.

Mr. Barros: You want to marry my daughter?

Jamie: Yes.

Mr. Barros: [yelling toward the back of the house] Come here, there is a man at the door. He wants to marry you.

[a fat and confused woman emerges]

Sophia Barros: But I've never seen him before.

Mr. Barros: Who cares?

Sophia Barros: You're going to sell me to a complete stranger?

Mr. Barros: Sell? Who said 'sell?' I'll pay him.

Jamie: Pardon me. I'm meaning your other daughter - Aurelia.

[in Portuguese]

Jamie: Beautiful Aurelia, I've come here with a view of asking you to marriage me. I know I seems an insane person - because I hardly knows you - but sometimes things are so transparency, they don't need evidential proof. And I will inhabit here, or you can inhabit with me in England.

Sophia Barros: [in Portuguese] Definitely go for England, girl. You'll meet Prince William - then you can marry him instead.

[Jamie has just proposed to Aurelia]

Sophia Barros: [in Portuguese] Oh God - Say 'yes' you skinny moron!

Aurelia: [in English] Thank you. That will be nice. Yes is being my answer. Easy question.

Jamie: You learned English?

Aurelia: Just in cases.

[Aurelia meets Juliet, Mark, and Peter in the airport]

Aurelia: Jamie's friends are so good looking! He never tells me this. I think, maybe now I have made the wrong choice? Picked wrong Englishman?

Jamie: She can't speak English properly, she-she doesn't know what she's saying

  2. Beautiful story line!! Thank you for posting the translation!

  3. I adore this movie,and Jamie and Aurelia especially..:)

  4. Wow I didnt understand the dialogue then. Beautiful movie and love actually exists. .

  5. Absolutely love this move, even 12 years on... it is still my favourite movie of ALL time... wish they had put Portuguese subtitles on to add to the atmosphere of this excellent rom-com; rather than my having to Google the translations. But at least I got to find out the translation, and it enhances further still the feel-good of this classic.

  6. Are there a full translation of all their conversations somewhere? Feel like there's more to it before the "driving you, leaving you" part.
